I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.
Sorry this kind of book is not for me. Too pat and predictable. Left me bored.
no both good, i have read many time and listen many time
when eve almost got fired because she fell in love with Roarke
I do like these better when guy is guy voice and woman is woman voice
I absolutely LOVE the entire In Death series, and since this book started it all, I thought I'd take a chance and listen to it while at a dental appointment. The time actually flew by - I wanted to ask the dentist if I could just stay there and keep listening to my book ;-)
This was already one of my favorite books, it's just nice to be able to rest my eyes and still "read" it .
Loved her voices - she gave each character their own flair, but didn't go overboard. Nicely done!
By-the-book homicide lieutenant falls for mega-billionaire suspect when he gives her coffee!
Highly recommend this book!
Please note: I'm listening to Celebrity in Death as I write this. This is the best series I've ever listened to. I highly suggest you start with Naked in Death and listen/read in order. I'm incredibly impressed with the story and it's character progression. The story has great continuity and the peripheral characters are just as interesting as Eve. I highly recommend this series.
All the technology that is at Eve's fingertips!
Rourke!! He doesn't take no for an answer.
I am not a romance reader but LOVED this book
I did not read the Print version
Lee Child series
Great female reader.
I will purchase more Nora Roberts when they go on sale
Geeky painter girl who loves all things Whedonverse. Audio book addict. :D
Daughter of Shadow and Bone by Laini Taylor and Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione.
Decent performance - not exceptional, but not awful.
The performance would lead me to rate it a 2.5 rather than just a 2 overall.
I felt that the references to sexual violence were gratuitous and the plot was predictable (I guessed the killer(s) the first time they appeared). The romance between the female cop lead and the controlling rich playboy (who was actually a suspect for the first crimes) was the worst part of the story for me. Completely implausible and forced. If I'd been Eve Dallas, I would have punched him or at the very least told him off when he made his first advances. The author didn't seem to know her own character. I won't be reading any more of the 30+ books in the series. :(
I'm totally addicted to audio books! I listen when my eyes get too tired to read and when I am driving or just don't want to sit and read!
I doubt that I will try the author again, I just couldn't get interested in it.
I don't think this is a genre for me, so yes.
I didn't have a problem with the narration, so I am willing to try one of hers again.
Just disappointment...not my interest really.
I should have read more reviews before buying. I think this was a special deal and that's why I gave it a shot.
This is such a great introduction to an excellent series of novels. I love the way that JD Robb develops the characters in a way that they are real people. You start to feel like you know these characters and can anticipate their thoughts and actions because you become part of the story yourself. What joy to lose yourself in the series!
I love Mavis. She's one of my favorite characters - and though she never has as big of a role in the books as I would like - the role she plays is memorable each time - and Susan Ericksen brings her to life!
This was my first in the JD Robb "In Death" series and I quite enjoyed it. The mystery was compelling and the relationship between the oft praised Eve and Rourke did not disappoint. I'm looking forward to more in the series.
